World Vision Niger

Poverty, which affects a large majority of Nigeriens, has serious repercussions on children's access to healthy food, financial resources, health services and education.

The lack of access to healthy food is the main reason for the high level of malnutrition which affects children in both rural and urban areas of Niger. Inadequate diets lead to underweight children and major development problems. Many children in Niger suffer from micro-nutritional deficiencies and disorders due to a lack of iodine.

At World Vision, we used a community-based approach to address the root causes of issues affecting children. Key sectors of our work include child protection; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), education, and nutrition. Gender, advocacy, faith and development are cross-cutting elements in all our work.
